What is DUI Manslaughter?

DUI manslaughter involves causing the death of another person while driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. This charge is more severe than a standard DUI because it involves a fatality, leading to harsher penalties and more complex legal proceedings.

In Nevada, DUI manslaughter is classified as a category B felony. The prosecution must prove that the driver was intoxicated and that this impairment directly led to the fatal accident. This requires careful analysis of evidence, such as blood alcohol content (BAC) levels, witness statements, and accident reconstruction data.

The penalties for DUI manslaughter in Nevada are stringent and can significantly impact one’s life. They include:

  • Probation and Parole: Possible probation or parole after serving part of the prison sentence.

Defenses Against DUI Manslaughter Charges

Several defenses can be employed to contest DUI manslaughter charges. Each case is unique, and the appropriate defense depends on the circumstances. Common defenses include:

  • Challenging BAC Results: Questioning the accuracy and handling of blood alcohol content tests.
  • Questioning Field Sobriety Tests: Highlighting the unreliability or improper administration of field sobriety tests.
  • Causation Issues: Arguing that factors other than the defendant’s impairment caused the accident.
  • Procedural Errors: Identifying mistakes or violations of legal procedures during the arrest or investigation.
  • Medical Conditions: Demonstrating that a medical condition, not intoxication, affected the driver’s behavior.

A skilled Las Vegas DUI manslaughter lawyer will thoroughly examine all aspects of the case to build a robust defense.

    "I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for."
    I met with Mr. Goodman who answered all my questions and knew his stuff.  I decided to hire a less expensive attorney but was not happy with the progress ended up being a waste of money with the other guy. I switched and hired Mr. Goodman and could not have been more impressed with the outcome. You do get what you pay for. I should have gone with my gut reaction at the beginning that would have saved me anxiety, time, and money. Don’t make the same mistake.
